thyssenkrupp Uhde Egypt has signed a contract with Egypt-based Delta Company for Fertilizer and Chemical Industries to revamp an existing ammonia plant complex located in Dakahlia, Talkha, Egypt.

Responsible for the front-end-engineering-design (FEED), thyssenkrupp Uhde will provide engineering solutions for the revamp of the ammonia plant as well as the ammonia offsite and central utility units. The company will also supply its technology for the production of ammonia and urea: the uhde® ammonia technology.

The uhde® ammonia technology has been successfully implemented in more than 120 plants worldwide. Together with the FEED solution, this technology will enable the plant to be re-commissioned after a three-year shutdown, while at the same time increasing the plant’s capacity from 1275 – 1400 t of ammonia per day.

Thomas Kufahl, CEO of thyssenkrupp Uhde in Egypt: “We are very proud to have been selected as the partner to execute this project and enable the re-commissioning of the ammonia plant together with a capacity increase. Our proven uhde® ammonia technology and our innovative engineering solutions guarantee the production of high-quality ammonia and urea worldwide.”

Delta’s ammonia plant recommissioning project is in line with the vision held by the Egyptian government and will provide significant impetus to the Egyptian economy during the reopening phase. The ammonia produced will facilitate expansion of the agricultural sector in Egypt.
